Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Architecture – Klab Architecture – Konstantinos Labrinopoulos

A house of 250m2 for a young family in an almost rural area part of Athens Paiania, was designed in a plot of 500m2. As the first house that was going to be built in this new suburb, but not the last we had to consider future developments but start from an almost white paper. Nevertheless due to crisis new developments are not due to appear any time soon.

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: Bureau Architecture Méditerranée 

The project includes the People’s National Assembly, the National Council (Senate), the Chamber (Congress), and a residence for legislators.

Algeria’s new parliament is a project that must meet the highest standards.

The building needs to embody the idea of democracy in action, the Algeria of the future, freedom, peace, strong but deliberative power. The architecture must communicate a distinct national identity founded on universal values.

Cultura Bookstore in são paulo, brazil by studio mk27

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: studio mk27

A bookstore with a meeting place. This was the main premise of the architectural project of the bookstore Livraria Cultura at Iguatemi. More than just merely a place to shop, the store is inviting to stay and hang-out. Thus, we sought for visitors to not only find a book that they might be looking for, but rather that they remain there.

House of Architects in Klecinski Park, Poland by ArC2 Fabryka Projekt

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: ArC2 Fabryka Projekt

A simple own house of the architects on a narrow plot in the park. A cuboid with extended glass drawers allowing a view on the greenery from any location.  The elevation is covered with homogenous material: Tecu Patina copper sheeting. A simple functional division into three zones: the utility, the day and the night ones. The house is cut through with a one-flight staircase whose walls are made of in situ concrete in a formwork with a stencil that filtrates horizontally the sun’s rays. The functional-communications layout enables intuitive moving around and the intimacy of the zones in a totally glazed house in spite of the uncomfortable three-storey structure. A house of hard-working architects. That is why the trees grow even through the terrace; there is no time for the garden and digging around in the ground. The trees, wind, sun and the cries of birds permeate the interior and become its important element. The fully glazed elevations part to let the wind play with white Tyvek curtains. Solar thermal collectors heat the water. Husky watches surroundings from the extended balcony-platform. One Husky, four huskies are reflected in the glass…
